The third Mississippi regiment now at Albany, Ga. will be mustered out today. Rev. Dr. E. C. Euirer, a noted ltap tist divine died at Clinton lust Sun day. The Oxford Globe is "iigln"' tin elec tive judiciary, Jsoel nmenclrueiit or no Noel amendment. Yalobusha county Democrats will vote direct for United States Senator and all county otlicials. The Elllsville News is four years old, and says it has not been support ed as It should have been. The best men of the Slate are want ed for the State, county and beat of fices. The scrub) arc not wanted this time. The act of Congress locating the of fice of deputy collector of the Tort of East Paseanoula to Scrantou lias bo cornea law. The State Democratic Executive Committee will meet on Thursday, April (ith to provide for the uiauuer o nominating State officers. The Slate board of health has re turned to the treasury $3,400, the iiniount unexpended from the appro priation, of $23,000 in 1S97 and $50,000 id 1803. Yarriaman is gaining ground in the northern and western part of the State. His most ardent supporters believe that he will get the nomina tion for Governor. THE TAEirr MES3- The Dinglry tariff law continues to yield a delleit. Say the Natchez Bulletin: The war tax, in its many annoying forms, meets Undo S im's daily expense bill, and the surplus from the wicked and unnecessary ootid sales is still piled up in the treasury; but the Dlnglcy law itself, which it was claimed, would be a per fect revenue producer as well as pro tector ol hlkMi-priccd American labor, is admittedly a failure. Senator Hanna himself has called attention to this fact. He says no tariff can here after be depended upon for revenue, because we are exporting, to Europe as well as to all other parts of the world, goods In each class covered by the Dingley schedules. The natural result Is that goods are not Imported and tariff revenues decrease, People do not Import goods and pay ocean freights and a GO percent tariff when a surplus of the same articles Is pro duced at home, but although the tariff Is not needed for protection (as we are tiellingall classes of goods to Europeans cheaper than they can make them) and although the tariff is useless ns a revenue producer, It will net be repealed or modified by the Republican party, because it is useful to the trusts in enabling them to maintain artitlcial prices in Amcr-lea. Col. Ed. irden, one of the oldest and wealthiest merchants of Jackson died last Sunday aged seventy-six years. L. K. Atwood, a colored lawyer of Jackson, has been appointed internal revenue collector, man resigned. vice V. S. Tarda An act of Congress authorizing terms of the district court for the SoutherndHtrict of Mississippi to be held at Iiiloxi has become a law. The Baptist throughout the State are mourning for the death of Rev, Dr. T. G. Sellers, one of the most dis tinguislied divines in the State, lie died at his home at Starkville last Sunday, after a lingering Illness. Senator Jones figures that if a sil ver president and vice president be elected next year, the silver men will control the Senate by one vote, that of the vice president. The Grenada Greuadian stales its preference thus: "Free silver and John Allen for the United States Senate, and a clean administration and Jas. K. Vardamun for the St ite." The Boston editors who are visiting the South, says the Nashville Banner, should try a dish of black-eyed peas if they wisli to llnd something better than baked beans. There Is a bill in the Wisconsin Leg islature to prevent people from being tight laced, but no one has considered It necessary to introduce a bill to pre vent them from being straight laced. Private John M. Allen is not a gold bug, but has the support of many of that class as well as a large majority of the silverites. And lie Is conlident of election to the United States Seu ate. . Judge A. II. Longino, candidate far Governor, Is getting more free adver tising than any other candidate in the State. Wonder, In t he event of his election will be remember the poor rural editors? A trust has been organized on the wool and woolen fabrics in this coun try to bo known as the American Woolen Company, with a capital of $50,000,000. How the trusts do multi ply Is wonderful. Texas claims the meanest man on earth. Out there the other day a man excused himself from attending his mother-in-law's funeral on the ground (if business, and quoting the saying, "Business before pleasure." The djmand for wood pulp has be come so heavy and the rapid clearing away of the spruce forests so apparent that even the Canadians, who have a vast area of supply, are becoming alarmed at the Inroads of the chop pers. In a letter to the editor of the Sun flower. Tocsin Hon. John Allen says that if he is elected to the Senate that he will do all that he can for the Mississippi river and Its interests In the way of appropriations; that he is a friend to the river. General Joseph Wheeler has decided to remain in Congress. He offered to go to Manlla,but his services were not needed there, and an interview with the President has had the effect of in ducing him not to persist in hit desire lor further army service. Personilly wo have the kindest feet ings for our misguided Governor Mo- uaurin, -but his mistakes and ml management, or me aflalrs of the State Justify us In advocating his re tlremcnt to private life. He would do a failure as United Ktin. Kon,.... and we hope and trust he will h ri! feated for that high and resnonslhl position. Men of a different calibre Bhould bo elected to represent the ... grand old State of Mississippi In the "luneiis oi ino nation. Rev. Dr. John V. Hunter, formerly pastor of the Presbyterian church at Jackson died last Monday, after an iiiness or several montns. lie was pastorof the first Presbyterian church of that city for thirty-eight years. An able christian gentleman is now at rest. ' Miss Emma George Hemingway, of Carrolllon, has "been appointed spon sor for Gen. S. D. Lee's division, Uni ted Confederate Veterans, during the Ninth Annual Reunion of the United Confederate Veterans, to be held at Charclston, S. C, from May 10th to 13th. William V. Sullivan Jr., son of Sen ator Sullivan, of Mississippi, who re cently was graduated from the Bliss School of Electrlcty of Washington, has been appointed electrician of the famous ocean greyhound, the City of Paris. Mr. Sullivan is only IS years of age and gives promise of distinc tion in his profession. A colored minister at Jackson has been keeping tab and his figures are interesting. His stalistics as to the killings in Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Mississippi show that the negroes kill more negroes than the whites kill, as well as more whiles than the whites kill. CALL FOR A MEETING Of the State Democratic Executive Committee. Meridian, March 14. Chairman Miller to-day gave out the following call for a meeting of the State Demo cratic Executive Committee: "A meeting of the State Democrat ic Ececiitiye Committee Is hereby call ed to te held in Jackson. Miss, on Thursday, the 6th day of April, 1899, for the purpose or determining the method of nominating candidates for the Democratic party and for the transaction of such other business as may come before it." We hope the committee will make no mistake In determining the mode and manner of nominating candidates hir the various offices of the State.and that the time of nominating should be fixed for the latter pan of August. Good News for Waynesboro. We are glad to state that the pros pects are now very encmirauimr fur the early building of the Waynesboro. rasragouia ana Uuif Uust railroad. We have re id communications of recent date from Northern capitalists to Dr. Pitts, the President of said road, expressing a desire in assisting him to build this line of railway. When we lake into consideration the facts connected with this project ed railroad, its advantages and impor tance are at once realized. According to the preliminary sur vey or this road, it is 107 miles from this place to the southern terminus a', the mouth of the Pascagoula river. It runs midway between -other railroads and penetrates through a belt or vir gin yellow pine timber that is uot ex celled In the United States. J. ho completion of this road would develop this section of our State, and various manufactur nir Industries would.spring up all along its line like magic, and its Importance to Waynes boro and the ix-oDle here can not scarcely be realized. Waynesboro Times. It strikes us very forcibly that sev eral years ago a tireliminarv sur vey of a road called the Pascagoula and Waynesboro road was made. Dr. U. is. Puts was the president and about twenty citizens of this place and Moss Point with the writer in eluded, put up the money to pay for the survey, but the road lias never materialized to this good hour. We would like to hear from Dr. Pitts on the subject. The Democrat must refuse to nrint lauditory articles of any candidates or prospective candidates, when sent in by correspondents. The rea son we do this is because we are honor bound to show no preference foranv of the men who arc seeking office. To print sucn articles in favor or candi dates would be an injustice to his or their opponents. We are going to grant special priveieges to none but equal rights to all, until the nomina tions are made and th.-n our columns are at the disposal of the party and its nominees Senatobia Democrat.. That Is exactly our position. We propose to treat all candidates who announce in the Dismocuat-Stau dike. When the Democracy meet mid place Ihe ticket in the field, then we will do all In our power to elect it. We always standby the nominees of the party whether we liko the candi dates personally or not. Beyond peradventure it will not be long before Scranton, the metropoli tan city of Jackson county, shall be known to the State as a manufactur ing center from which the State at large and the surrounding country will receive its canned goods in the shape or fruits, vegetables and fish. "Mississippi" says the Clarion Led ger, "has a right to feel proud. In the great chess games with the world-famous Pillsbury at New Orleans, a Mississippi boy, Martin McGrath, of Bionkhaven, drew the first game with the wizzard, and Johnnie Carraway, or Biloxl, was the last player to go down under rillsbury's assaults. The great master says that McGrath and Carrawav are the best players he lias met in his southern tour. The Hattiesburg Progress says that work is progressing very rapidly on tho Guirand Ship Island Railroad. "The surveying parties," It says, af ter detailing tho work being done, "are ahead locating routes, but Just which route will be adopted no one seems to know. A statement is to the effect that tho road will go one mile east of Williamsburg. Atanyrate it is headed forWilliamsburg butwheth- er it will go in a mile of tho town or not Is not known, perhaps not by t ho projectors themselves. But it Is go ing and going rapidly, and that is enough for the present." President Edmond Souchon, of the Louisiana board of health and Dr. Quitman Kuhnke, of the city board, have been Indicted for manslaughter in bastleliciana parish, having caused ucain in that parish through the Introduction of yellow fever from New Orleans. The Indictment Is the result of the charges of Dr. J. Mack owen, who claimed that tho doctors wuo nan Held that yellow fever was not as Infectious as typhoid and not quaranthiable, and that they failed to njuiy tue parish authorities of the existence of alleged fever in New Or- icuiis. un. Huucrmn nnrl were arrested and taken to East Fe liciana for trial, nnnd has been given in tho sum uf tl.ooo each and trial fixed for Sept. 1st. One of our correspondents has suur- gested that our people subscribe liber- ny to tnc extension or the Moss 'oint road through this county to Elllsville. We take the liberty or saying that the citizens of this coun ty will respond quickly to this mat ter when called on by the proper par- . it iiau wur iiuupiu wHiib lo Know is, will this road pass through the county seal? This is a matter of vi tal inlerst both, to them and to the promoters of the road, and the road that gets through Greene countv via t-lic county seat Is the road thatwill do the business of the county. There Is an immense amount of transpora tion that conies to this place, and will well pay a road to come this way. Let us hear from the good people of Moss Point on this subject. We want some clearer details. Green County Herald. Private John Allen is still growing In favor in the Delta and the south where lie lias met most opposition. The reason is very evident. What the people of our State need is a Senator of a loyal heart and true, unselfish motives, a man that recognizes what is best and is not afraid to make known his belief. We want a man that is able and ready to do committ ee work and backs his few remarks by a healthy vote. We want a man true to the State and Democratic princi ples, and our peoplo are rapidly grow ing In confidence as to his ability and worthiness of a seat In tho highest legislative body on earth. Mr. Allen is fully capable of the work and we believe would be a most excellent running-male for Senator Money. The two would work In harmony and would readily restore this great common-wealth to its wanted dignity in the Upper House. They would com mand the utmost respect and con fidence or their people, and would re ceive a hearing upon all subjects. Their argument would have weight. Dixie Press.
